Papers are invited for a Symposium on recent developments in fire properties and other properties of electrical and optical fiber cables, sponsored by ASTM Committee D09 on electrical and electrical insulating materials. The symposium will be held Oct. 4, 2004 in Washington, D.C. in conjunction with the Oct. 3-8, 2004 standards development meetings of Committee D09.

The objective of the symposium is to address recent technical and scientific advances in the measurement or testing of fire, mechanical, electrical, data transmission, and other properties of electrical and optical fiber cables, which have electrical and electronic insulating materials. It will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on current research, nationally and internationally.
